That was the focus of the Vanguard Forum for Healthcare Leaders, Europe, this past February.
The location was Mercers’ Hall, a majestic guild hall in the City of London. We brought together around 85 senior management delegates to spend a day with current and former CEOs, Board members and leadership experts. In a series of intimate sessions and dialogues, we covered real-world challenges for CEOs and C-Suite executives, from working with the Board, to building a high performance top team, to leading on societal issues.
We are entering the fourth year of Vanguard since I founded it in New York City in 2014, but this was the inaugural Forum in Europe. So I was eager to hear what delegates thought about it. An acid test is to ask whether participants would recommend an experience to their peers. We asked that tough question – and 97% of the London delegates said they would! That was so good it was a bit astonishing. But we double-checked the numbers, and that’s what it was.
